Subject: WALT!
Pretty atypical outdoorsy home movie here with the bonus addition of a brief glimpse of Walt Disney Studios in the late 30s. And also anything retro vegas is always a hoot. But other then that, typical.

Subject: Mostly Zion & Bryce Canyon
Nice quality color film. It's not mentioned in the description, but most of this film shows Zion and Bryce Canyon in southern Utah. Here is my shotlist:

00:05
Mexican market & bar, possibly Tijuana
00:14
WW2 era Navy vessels probably San Diego
00:58
Produce market
01:19
Street scenes in LA (color shots of late '30s cars)
01:50
Walt Disney Productions (historic shots)
02:08
Palm-lined road & citrus orchard
02:29
Joshua Tree area
02:56
Death Valley
03:23
Las Vegas (night shots of neon signs)
03:40
Boulder Dam
04:30
Lake Mead
04:59
Suburban street & house
05:12
Desert scenes
05:41
Zion Park, Utah
10:14
Bryce Canyon, Utah
13:30
Grand Canyon from South Rim
15:06
San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff AZ
15:14
end

I would estimate the date of this film as circa 1940, so the stated date of 1939 is plausible.
